We are happy to report today that Stephan Murer, IT chief architect at Credit Suisse, will deliver a keynote address at SATURN 2013, which will be held at the Minneapolis Marriott City Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota April 29 through May 3, 2013.
Stephan Murer got his diploma and Ph.D. in computer science from ETH Zürich, doing research on using hardware-supported context switches to hide memory latency in non-uniform memory architectures. After that he moved on to the International Computer Science Institute at UC Berkeley to continue and expand his research into parallel object-oriented programming languages and type systems for object-oriented languages. After returning to Switzerland, he left academia and started his career in Credit Suisse as an internal consultant. Up to the year 2000, Murer held different roles in Credit Suisse as a manager, project lead, and technical expert. In 2000 he was promoted to managing director and put in charge of the firm’s information systems architecture. Today, he is still chief architect, directly reporting to the CIO of Credit Suisse. Besides his main job, Murer remained active in the academic world, where he occasionally teaches and has enabled a number of industry collaborations. Among other activities, Murer served as a member of the Swiss National Research Council, helping the National Science Foundation to allocate research funding.
Here is a link to a presentation by Dr. Murer at the European Conference on Web Services 2011 in Lugano, Switzerland.
Dr. Murer will be joining Mary Poppendieck and two other speakers soon to be announced as keynotes for SATURN. Registration for SATURN opens on February 4, 2013, and the technical program and schedule of tutorials and courses will be announced at that time. Stay tuned!
